Om mig

I´m currently working as a cardiac sonographer and working with cardiac MRI examinations in the Division of Cardiology & Clinical Physiology at Danderyds Hospital. 


I´m a doctoral student in the Department of Clinical Sciences at KIDS (Karolinska Institute Danderyds Hospital).

The aim of my doctoral thesis is to study structural and functional changes with echocardiography in atrial fibrillation patients as a part of the StrokeStop2-study. We are also investigating whether echocardiographic parameters can predict permanent atrial fibrillation.  


I graduated with a Bachelor Degree as a Biomedical Scientist in Clinical Physiology at Karolinska Institute 2010. Shortly after I started to work with echocardiography, caardiac MRI and ECG examinations. Later in 2018, I graduated with a Masters Degree in Medical Science at Örebro University.
